Three new runners are being assigned to teams this morning.

Welcome to your new teams!
It's still a great time to sign up for the Miles Game. There are several openings and there is no significant waiting period at the moment. Look at the Open Invitation and FAQ thread for details on how to sign up.
A few changes. zoekat and happyscientist, both from Margaritaville Miles, are retiring from the game. Both had been on the Injured Serve list for a while. Sorry to see you go. And andee1296 from team 4midable has gone on the Injured Reserve list.
There are spaces available for anyone who wants to join the Miles Game. Check out the 'Open Invitantion and FAQ thread for how to join.
One change right now: KateRuns is going to Phoenix Rising. Welcome to your new team!
And Kpeacock has been added to Team 4midable. Welcome to your new team!
myartymyk has just joined Triple Digits. And BexKix from Phoenix Rising will be going on Injured Reserve after the results are run today. We're hoping to see Becky back soon.
Just a heads-up to the team Captains: there are a bunch of people who have been on Injured Reserve for something bordering on forever. I suspect some of them have forgotten about the game completely. If you're able to figure out what's going on with your long-term IR runners, let aplodder or me know and we can either drop them from the game, leave them on IR, or bring them back onto their teams.
Are we there yet?
I have two. I'll PM the names to you.
2016 Goals: Exceed 100K in a 24-Hour race, run more trail races (2 currently scheduled)
Two long-term injured runners from Corredores are being dropped today: Ice Mom, and start@60. Neither has been heard from in a long time. In the event that either resurfaces, they're allowed to come back.
Team Captains - if you've got any long term IR runners who you think should be dropped, let aplodder or me know.
And crazyrunninglady from Team 4midable is retiring from the game. She will be missed.

As you probably know, one of the Miles Game's few rules is that you have to post your miles every week, and that if you go three weeks without posting your miles you get dropped from the game. Unless you're on Injured Reserve or there's some other reason that you've let us know about in advance.
I haven't posted the drops for non-posting lately. I think April 11th is the last time I listed the drops of the three-week non-posters. In the 16 weeks since April 11th, 56 runners have been dropped from the Miles Game for not posting their miles. Here's the list:
